Synonyms: Cirrhosis of the liver is synonymous with the microscopic image classified as"stage 4". Cirrhosis per sevis largely asymptomatic. However, end-stage liver disease, manifested by ascites, jaundice and other manifestations can quickly lead to death.

Advanced: It means the liver is all scarred down. Stage 4 is the same as having cirrhosis. It is irreversible. If whatever is damaging the liver is not controlled, it can lead to liver failure.
